Western North Carolina Joins Together for the 4th Year

Collaboration has been the key for the Western NC participants in American Craft Week. Since 2010, representatives of area galleries, studios and craft organizations meet monthly and work as a group to promote the whole regions’ ACW events.

Together WNC participants plan a kick-off event, invite a guest speaker to come to the area, highlight events on a regional postcard or rack card, and plan area media promotions.

Individual participants can represent a single gallery, an artist studio, or an organization comprised of over 900 artist members in the case of the Southern Highland Craft Guild. WNC proudly brings an average of 40+ participant listings to ACW every year…so many they’ve managed their own page of events on the ACW website and their own Facebook page!

Finally Western NC has seen the value of sponsoring ACW to strengthen the overall national effort and outreach. This year six of the national sponsors are Western NC participants! Thank you Western NC!
